The Seattle Seahawks opened their 2018 training camp Thursday morning at a sun-splashed Virginia Mason Athletic Center. A team that missed the playoff for the first time in six years and missing one its best players was focused on returning to competition for the Superbowl if not the playoffs. The Seahawks went through a reboot or a complete makeover during the offseason. The uncertainty on what type of offseason process the Seahawks depends on who you ask. The team believes it was mere retooling others believe it was a complete rebuild.
Call it what you want, the certainty here is that the Seahawks are on a mission to prove they are a legitimate contender in the NFC West if not the NFC according to linebacker Bobby Wagner.
DAY ONE TAKEAWAYS
Seahawks ran practice with precision and excitement. The players went through the drills with what looked like a hungriness. Why it was the first day of school and everyone was full of excitement there was a noticeable pace to how the players moved from drill to drill.
